MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA - 05/30/2017 (PRESS RELEASE JET)
Quantiacs, the world’s 1st online marketplace for institutional-quality quantitative trading algorithms, just released a new product called Quantinator, allowing anyone to create trading algorithms in the cloud with no programming experience. Even teenagers are now using Quantiacs to start their own hedge fund.
Quantinator provides a first of its kind optimizer for trading algorithms and drastically lowers the barrier of entry for anyone interested in quantitative research and algorithmic trading.
“We are democratizing the hedge fund industry by empowering our community and providing access to tools, data, and capital allocations,” says CEO and veteran quant Martin Froehler. “With Quantinator, anyone in the world with a computer and internet access can develop and optimize trading strategies with little or no programming experience for free. It’s a game-changer for quantitative finance, and the first tool of its kind.”
Quantinator features 26 years worth of futures data and macroeconomic indicators along with complete backtesting functionality and visual optimization features.
"Democratizing the industry leads to more diversity; diversity accelerates innovation; innovation accelerates opportunity and financial inclusion," says Quantiacs CMO Brinkley Warren. "Our newest product is designed to maximize educational possibilities in quantiative finance, making it easier than ever to learn how to be a freelance quant. Quants are the new kings of Wall Street, and at Quantiacs, we are empowering the next generation of quant talent."
The educational possibilities of Quantinator for teaching and learning are already making an impact among the Quantiacs community.
Dr. Antony Jackson is an assistant professor in financial economics in the UK, and has already organized a new module for undergraduates where he’ll use Quantiator to introduce python programming and alternative investment strategies to finance students who likely don’t have a computer science background.
“There's a lot of talent in universities,” says Jackson, “and I like how Quantiacs is leveling the playing field with just the right balance between speed and analytical power, and by offering free features that no other software provides. With Quantinator, Quantiacs has created a cutting-edge teaching and learning tool that makes quant finance accessible to anyone with a desire to learn. You can read a blog I wrote about it here."
“With Quantinator, we wanted to lower the barrier of entry to quantitative finance to zero,” Froehler said. “We designed the tool to empower quant education and training so that anybody can easily get started developing their own trading strategies and algorithms.”
Quantinator is a free algorithm building tool that is accessible via web browser and mobile devices. Becoming a quant has never been easier. Quants can develop trading programs in several different programming languages. Quantinator provides an intuitive UI, sample trading algorithms, an optimization functionality, and tools to analyze the backtesting results.
Once a trading program is built it can be submitted to Quantiacs’ marketplace where it gets thoroughly tested on live market data and becomes available to institutional investors.
